institute of technology your written statements will be made part of the formal record. mr. casey, we will begin with you. you are recognized for five minutes. >> thank you, mr. chairman and members of the committee. it is an honor and privilege to appear here today to discuss the critical issue of the federal debt ceiling. . . i would like to address the more fundamental constitutional questions of whether there must be a congressionally mandated limit to federal borrowing, and the extent to which the president may ignore these restraints or simply raise that limit and borrow money on his own authority. i believe that the answer is clear. under the constitution, congress alone has the power to decide how, when and why federal spending should take place, and the extent to which that spending may be supported by taxation and or borrowing. the debt limit or ceiling is, of course, a statutory device that dates to the first world war. although the debt limit in its current form is not constitutionally mandated, some type of congressionally controlled limit on executive branch borrowing is

domestic terrorism icy on a regular basis. funding, personnel, equipment , support, technology. a focus on regular basis that domestic terrorism is as important as international terrorism. you almost have to take all of your clothes off to get in an airplane. one guy had a bomb in his shoe, and yet all of us take off our shoes to get on the airplane. that is fine. i want to be safe. we cannot do what we need to do without serious focused federal support. that is what the idea is out. a 9/11 commission told us what we need to be doing to be safe in the air. we need that same kind of response on the ground. that is one answered. congressman, to your question, i think one of the reasons, i do not think americans are not that much more prone to violence. but when you have almost as many guns as you have people in this country, invariably, they end up in the hands of folks who should not have them. . tried to pass them in philadelphia and we did get this one by. the simple idea that you had to report your weapon, lost or stolen, if you want to make a claim about your car to the insurance compan

classroom where i was going to call it skype, but it's the new technology as uvo. i talk to all these kids in my district, my part of the county, about things that are going on in congress. i was telling them about this particular piece of legislation that was going to come before the congress tomorrow and tell them that the senate had actually not passed a budget in almost four years. they said, how could that be? isn't there anything you can do to force that? i said, we're going to try tomorrow and it's unfortunate it has to come to that. whatever kind of budget the senate would pass, obviously the house republicans would very vehemently disagree with it. however, it's a way to begin a negotiation. where you're not negotiating with yourself. i think most folks, whatever business you might be involved in or a government entity or your own household, a budget is a blueprint, it is a blueprint for a path forward to your spending priorities and how you proceed. i appreciate all the work done by my colleagues on ways and means on this as an important piece of legislation. i just came to

lines you described, not with yesterday's technology but with advanced manufacturing. mr. tonko: the efforts that we have with so much of manufacturing with the incubator programs that en-- enable us to provide innovation in any of these assembly operations is key. i think it's key to our future. and i think of those situations in my district or even in my former district, where they worked with a local college that was very technically sophisticated, in this case r.p.i. in the greater capital region of new york worked with incubator program to develop these new opportunities within the plastics manufacturing that harry county utilized. it's worth mentioning on this floor, that that really brought about a new phase of activity for this company, by innovation, by re-adjusting its procedure, its process, they were able to compete more effectively that required, however, that they move their training, their work force, because it required a new skillset and as they did that, they reached out to hudson valley community college in the capital region of new york. that partnership crea

. there are ways beyond government funding to increase adoption of smartphone technology. here is the policy requiring bylaw that a person locked up the guns in their home when not in use to prevent handling by kids without adult supervision and you can see a gradient of support and some difference in opinion as might be expected on this policy by gun ownership status. here are these three policies in terms of majority support by a political party identification. ok. what can we conclude from this research? first of all, we find high support among -- including among gun owners for a wide range of gun policies. the most feasible policy is from a political perspective including 20 from this list of 33 with a majority support regardless of gun ownership or political party identification. i think the bottom-line from the study as policymakers have a large range of options to choose from which are supported by the american public. i cannot emphasize this enough for in the context of the discussions we have been having over the last couple of days related to the fact that there are multiple

technology. although the same caveat in terms of using the concept of government funding. we learned from the talks yesterday there are ways beyond government funding per say to increase adoption of smart gun technology. here is the policy requiring by law that a person locked up the guns in their homes when not in use to prevent handily by kids without adult supervision, and you can see a gradient of support and some difference in opinion as might be expected on this policy by gun ownership status. hear of these three policies in terms of majority support by political party identification. ok. so, what can we conclude from this research? first of all, we find high support among -- including among gun owners for a wide range of gun policies. the most feasible policies from a political perspective include 20 from this list of 33 with majority support regardless of gun ownership or political party identification. i think the bottom line from this study is policymakers have a large range of options to choose from which are supported by the american public. and i cannot emphasize this point e
